The Short Answer:

The investment varies from around $3,000 to $8,500 depending on the level of technology and the complexity of the selected treatment plan. Some people favor a low monthly payment plan and others prefer to invest in their long-term hearing healthcare up-front. With many options available depending on your unique circumstances, lifestyle, and budget, it’s recommended to schedule an appointment so that we can learn more about you and walk you through your options.

The Long Answer:

The investment required for hearing aids/hearing care shouldn’t be a difficult question to answer, but it is. It’s a little bit like asking how much a car costs; the answer varies so heavily depending on many circumstances.

Within this article, I’m going to do my very best to answer this question, help you to understand your options, and explain what kind of investment you can expect based on your circumstances.

But first, there is one critically important thing that you must understand.

What you are predominantly paying for when addressing a hearing challenge is not the hearing aid/technology. It’s the high-level of hearing care, expertise, and long-term support that you receive from a doctor of audiology who has helped thousands of people to achieve better hearing prior to you.

It could be compared to wanting to achieve whiter teeth.

You could buy the whitening gel yourself, receive some basic instructions, and go through the process alone; or you could choose to work with an experienced dentist that has transformed countless smiles.

There is no right or wrong decision; it entirely depends on your circumstances and preferences. 

However, if you want to achieve the best possible outcome, hear the life that you love and have a long-term partner by your side to deliver a long-term solution, not just put a band-aid on a problem, then working with an experienced doctor of audiology is the best option for you.

By working with a team of experts, you receive a detailed treatment plan that ensures that you’re fully supported every step of the way.

This includes such things as a fully managed warranty – this means that your hearing aids are well cared for and covered if they are lost, damaged, or require repairs or replacements.

Plus, you receive ongoing care/support, including monitoring your hearing health, supporting you with any challenges, and making any required adjustments to guarantee the best possible performance.

Essentially, you have an expert by your side.

These advanced treatment plans include brand new hearing devices and vary from $4,549.00 to $8,549.00 depending on your unique circumstances, lifestyle, and budget. With payment plans available and an array of different options, the team at Alaska Hearing & Tinnitus Center will be able to find a solution that works for you.

I hope this article helps you to understand the options available to you, the kinds of investment that you can expect, and why working with the right experts is so important.
